Israel's Oil Refineries to build 135 MW natgas power plant

JERUSALEM (Reuters) — Israel’s Oil Refineries (ORL) has received government approval to build a 135 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled power station to replace an old coal-fired plant, it said on Wednesday.

ORL, Israel’s largest refining and petrochemicals group, said it plans eventually to expand the new station to 340 MW.

The company did not disclose financial details of the new co-generation plant, which will produce both steam and electricity to power ORL’s own operations.

The old plant it is replacing currently burns 500 Mt of coal a year, said ORL, which last month signed a deal with Greek energy company Energean to buy gas from two offshore Israeli fields.

The New LNG Imperative

The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
